The Vision. - Poem by Sir Knight of words

I had a vision
a thought in my mind
that all men and women
were equal in kind
we would lay down our arms
and surrender the fight
to be brothers and sisters
on seeing the light,

My vision had movement
I thought I could touch
as the smoke cleared away
I was covered in doves
and I appeared younger
with no battle scars
the earth smelled much sweeter
in the vision I had,

People were smiling
the children did sing
they annointed my body
and gifts they did bring
my torso was covered
in fine linnen cloth
and presented me down
at the feet of my lord.

    Dear Sir knight, I believe that these words of your poem, 'all men and women
    were equal in kind' are the key to fullfilling your vision. As Patricia says it does have a serene religous feel to it, both at the beginning and the last verse. Very much in keeping with what Easter is truly about. Thanks for sharing,10 from Tai, equal in her own minds eye.

    A wonderful vision. The begining took me to the time of Christ. A deserving thing for the nearing day of Easter. Well done Sir.
